About the Author
Glenn Hill, age 70, is a retired pastor and businessman. He has been preaching the Gospel since boyhood. He served as an assistant pastor for over thirteen years. For nearly twenty-eight years he was the pastor of Meadowbrook Christian Church, a small non-denominational church. He continues to preach wherever he is invited. Like the apostle Paul, he also did secular work, though his ministry always held the priority. He was a bank vice-president, the CEO of a rather large non-profit organization, and for many years operated a retail business. He and his wife of fifty years, the former Betty Sue Giddens, live in Rocky Mount, NC. They have two sons, two daughters, four in-laws, and twelve grandchildren.

1. Consider Jesus mistaken/wrong. Many scholars (who understand the ramifications) and some Christians (who probably don't understand the ramifications) take this view
2. Consider Jesus statement to be true (because everything Jesus teaches is true)
3. Have a preconceived idea of what His coming would be like and assume that there is no way Jesus could have returned (in spite of the fact that he said he would). Therefore, the best response is to re-interpret various scriptural passages to make change their meanings. And say irrational things like quickly doesn't really mean quickly.
Author Glenn Hill is very passionate and honest as he explains how he came to the conclusion that Jesus did what He said He would do. After preaching the popular eschatology view (Jesus is coming in the future) for most of his years, Mr. Hill was motivated to write this book hoping to correct his past teaching. The forward is given by Preterist apologist Don K Preston. Mr. Hill rightly discusses the great embarrassment to Christianity as generation after generation, and even many modern "prophets" confidently proclaim that Jesus is coming, but it doesn't happen. And, he points to many scriptural proofs that clearly say when Jesus would return. Hill proposes a "who, what, where, when, and why" approach to scriptural passages and here is a summary of the chapters:
1. Do these gospel passages provide the timing for the return? Matt 23:36-24:35, Matt 16:27-28, John 21:21-23, Matt 26:64, Matt 10:23
2. When does the book of Revelation say Jesus would return?
3. Passages containing the "last days"
4. "End of the world" passages
5. The Judgment
6. When did the Apostles say Jesus was coming? Peter, Paul, John
7. Other characters in the Bible: James, and author of Hebrews
8. When does the bible say the coming was imminent?
In chapter 9, there is a handy chart showing the time from AD 30 to AD69 and the scriptures that may apply. Towards the end of the book, there is an excellent closing summary of the arguments (wish all books had this). At the end, Mr. Hill thanks those who have read his work.
This book is 225 pages, and a 7 x 10 format.
